Best lunar topo map from ASU

ASU's LROC (Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter) team released Version 1 of the Wide Angle Camera (WAC) topographic map of the Moon a couple days ago. The map covers "nearly the entire Moon, at a scale of 100 meters across the surface, and 20 meters or better vertically."

ASU also posted a dynamic, scalable version of the lunar map.
